If you recently purchased Wonderful Pistachios, be sure to check your pantries for any packages that may have been recalled. Wonderful Pistachios announced that it is voluntarily recalling a limited number of flavors and sizes of in-shell and shelled pistachios due to a risk of Salmonella contamination. The products, which were distributed through several retailers nationwide and Canada, can be identified by a 13-digit lot code number that can be found on the lower back or bottom panel of the package. The specific products and lot codes can be found on the FDA website here.
While we do not know if the recalled pistachios were sold at Safeway stores in Colorado, it is possible, so check your packaging to be sure.
You can return any recalled products to Wonderful Pistachios for a refund by sending the product back or bottom portion of the package that contains the lot code (see photo below) to Wonderful Pistachios, 13646 Hwy 33, Lost Hills, CA 93249. Or, you may return the product to the store from which it was purchased for a refund. Consumers should discard the nuts prior to returning the entire package or lot code panel to their retail store.
Consumers with questions are encouraged to contact (844) 505-3844, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
